With good weather on what is typically considered the first long weekend of summer, you can expect vehicles of all sorts on the highway, some towing trailers and recreational vehicles, and on the other side, you can also expect farm vehicles busy in their seeding season.
CAA Saskatchewan spokesperson Christine Niemczyk urges anyone heading out to make sure their vehicle is road ready.
That includes checking the tires on your vehicle and whatever you are towing, as well as checking fluid levels, and batteries, and making sure your children’s car or booster seats are properly installed.
Once that is all in order, the next thing to do is let someone know when you are leaving, and when you are expected to arrive.
Niemczyk also advises drivers to hand over their phone to someone else in the vehicle, and remember to slow to 60 kilometres an hour on the highway, when passing working tow truck operators.
Along with many other agencies including the police and MADD Saskatchewan, CAA Saskatchewan also urges motorists to not drink and drive.
